The sunlight fades, ever fast, away

As darkening clouds, obscure the day

Bringing daggers, lights against the gloom

With a thunderous roar, and shattering boom

Over the lands, to quench an insatiable thirst

Pelting down, from the skies, a raucous cloudburst

Flooding over the streets and sidewalks, where

People run to escape, this torrential nightmare

The falling of the rain is, how Mother Nature rebels

Until she’s had enough, then, the rain she will quell


Author’s Note:  I wrote this while listening to a thunderstorm.  The skies opened up and it poured!!  I love writing to that sound   🙂
